Centrifugal plasma furnace, cutaway artwork. Also known as a centrifugal plasma arc furnace, this device is used to turn contaminated soils and other waste materials into glassy solids for disposal. Centrifugal force is used to hold the waste material in the melt chamber. The arc itself produces temperatures in excess of 10,000 degrees Celsius. This waste disposal technology was developed in the 1990s. Artwork by R. D. Treble of the National Physical Laboratory, Teddington, UK.
